I am not the one making claims of knowledge that others may or may not have. I do not understand (lack knowledge) why anybody supports either Republicans or Democrats generically. Neither Party deserves much respect -look at the debt we are in. Who should we blame? Party loyalty? The Parties are oligarchic structures that behave like parasitic organisms. We need to dismantle both of them. In their quest for self preservation, they are making all of us suffer. Socrates, the Father of attainment of knowledge, would shake his head sadly and sigh. We have learned nor remembered anything. Democrat. Republican. Pah! Labels for the weak minded to use as weapons.

Maybe you should sign up as an advisor for the Greek government. They - and the rest of the EU - seem to have some illusions about public debt that you could dispel.

I try to be objective but am satisfied that I am quite subjective. I can only know what I think I know. The current political structure, based on two Parties that have all of us at each others' throats is, in my humble, subjective opinion a problem. Your coming on this forum to disparage as you have with your first comments is of little value to anybody except perhaps yourself. I do find your view of debt fascinating. I will leave you with the last word, if you desire one. We have wandered off the (unwritten) topic: Political Parties use poster children. They are both guilty of this action.

It is false to think that being neutral between the parties is like being objective. It is just another strategy people use to infuse their political perspective with importance and authority.

And public debt is not a problem at all. It is part of the solution. Private debt IS a big problem, but public debt is very inexpensive to taxpayers these days. The time to pay down the public debt--scale back spending and broadly raise taxes--is when private sector growth has some traction. And we will know THAT moment when public borrowing rates start to climb appreciably. But right now, the market is shoveling money at Uncle Sam. The market is accepting negative real returns for the privilege of lending capital to the federal government.

Wisconsin Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch is hard at work for conservatives in the birthplace of progressivism.


From Townhall Magazine's November feature, "Wisconsin Warrior" by Marybeth Hicks:

Standing at the podium inside the Waukesha County Exposition Center on June 5, Rebecca Kleefisch—having just survived handily the first recall election of an American lieutenant governor—surveys the standing-room-only crowd, flashes an electrifying smile and delivers the punch line to what feels like an inside joke.
